To Each Los Angeles County Supervisor and to the Board: Thank you for adopting Laura’s Law (Calif. AB 1421 of 2002) in Los Angeles County in 2004. However, we need full implementation of Laura’s Law. People with mental illness should not have to deteriorate to the point they are on the street, end up in jail or prison, victimized or dead. Waiting for danger is too late. We need Laura’s Law now. Please fully implement Laura’s Law in Los Angeles County.
